Is there a difference between managerial accounting and financial accounting?

In many universities and schools, there is both a Managerial Accounting and a Financial Accounting course. From what I can gather, Financial Accounting covers accounting from an perspective of an investor, while Managerial Accounting covers accounting from the perspective of a business manager. Is there really a difference, or is the distinction more of a subjective standpoint?
